Nordson's bracket with gun and sensor

Reduce Waste, Improve Quality
Several new systems for Bobst folder/gluers are designed to reduce waste and improve the quality of the final product. These include: SPEEDWAVE GT, which improves the on-machine performance of complex cartons such as crash-locks; ACCUBRAILLE GT, which allows in-line Braille embossing of up to 8 lines, on 4 panels, as well as across the blank; and ACCUCHECK which inspects every carton blank in the run for print and substrate defects. www.bobst.com
